Just Had Shoulder Surgery
I just had surgery on my shoulder on 1/21/09. I have walked on crutches for 30+ years and have really worn the arm out. My surgeon removed several bone spurs on the underside of the clavicle (collarbone) at the joint which had frayed the rotator cuff. I was lucky, it hadn't completely torn through. He also removed a scar tissue encapsulation of the joint. I was back on the crutches with no restrictions on Friday afternoon. I feel pretty good. I look and feel like I've been beaten on my shoulder but otherwise, all is well!
